Our annual Condom Couture Fashion Fundraiser is coming up on November 27, 2015!!
ARCHES (formerly Lethbridge HIV Connection) in partnership with Club Didi and the Lethbridge College Fashion Design and Sustainability Program are preparing for their second annual Condom Couture Fashion Show fundraising event. We are excited to announce that we will be holding this years show at the Italian Canadian Club on November 27, 2015. Doors open at 7:00pm and the show starts at 8:00pm. The event is a lighthearted approach to educating our community about the very serious issues of HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention. Take into consideration these facts:
- The number of people living with HIV in Canada is increasing
- 25% of people living with HIV are unaware that they are HIV positive
- Every 3 hours a person in Canada is infected with HIV
Simply practicing safe sex by using a condom every time will drastically decrease transmission rates of HIV and other STIs. ARCHES works to educate people and the Condom Couture Fashion Show; featuring outfits containing condoms as a design material and elements helps make this point.
The event is attended by people that want to enjoy a fun evening of fashion and entertainment in support of ARCHES and the important programming that we do in our community.
We are very excited about this great event that we hope will successfully assist us in raising funds to support our programming, spread awareness about HIV and help educate the public about prevention. Your support is truly appreciated and you are welcome to contact us with any questions about the event at [email protected].
This March, the Lethbridge HIV Connection Society will welcome spring by hosting its annual Gerbera Daisy SPRING FOR LIFE fundraising campaign, and we are looking for your support to ensure its success.
Spring for Life is our major fundraiser for the year, and all proceeds support the programs of the Lethbridge HIV Connection, which provides services to those living with HIV/AIDS in Southwestern Alberta. In order to make the campaign successful, we rely on the generosity of people and businesses like yours.
The Spring for Life campaign features 5 brightly coloured mini Gerbera daisies for the low price of $5.00 a bouquet. The daisies can be pre-ordered anytime by using the attached order form or by calling the office at 403-328-8186 between 9 am and 4 pm Monday to Thursday. The daisies will be available for delivery (on orders of 10 bouquets or more) on March 19th and 20th or you can pick them up at the Connection at 1206 – 6 Ave S. between 9:00 and 4:00 on March 18th to 20th.
This is a great opportunity to brighten your home or office or someone’s day with the beauty of spring– all while supporting a local cause!
Spring for Life and make a difference in your community!
